Tell me.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

Troll makes dumb topics to try to be funny or get attention. Bully attacks people with the intention of hurting their feelings.

OMG ENOUGH ALREADY!  Get a Grip!  Get a hobby or something!  Pay more attention to your family instead of annoying everyone online.

a troll basically likes to just start a fight verbally but then may ignore any ensuing disputes caused by their controversial topic.  A bully continues with the argument they started inciting maybe a mob mentality or physical violence/threats.

A bully steals your money and beats you up.

A troll hides under a bridge and eats you.

lol. A bully is saying something to try and make someone intentionally mad or try purposely to hurt someones feelings. Troll is someone who just bullshits basically just to see other people's reactions.
